Our Firm
 
 
 
  Kura & Wilford Co., L.P.A. was founded in November, 1996 by James P. Kura, Esq. and Barry W. Wilford, Esq. as a criminal defense law firm. Building upon many years of experience as criminal defense trial lawyers, Kura and Wilford worked together to develop a unique law practice—a practice that specializes in post-conviction remedies* for inmates within the Ohio prison population as well as traditional criminal defense services.  
     
  Once the practice was established, it quickly became evident that the need for post-conviction representation, largely ignored by the traditional criminal defense bar, was overwhelming; the firm would need additional attorney resources from time to time. It was at this point that Dennis Pusateri, Esq., a distinguished criminal defense law practitioner, agreed to serve “of counsel” for Kura & Wilford Co., L.P.A., and provide legal representation on a case-by-case basis.  
     
  Following a year-long battle with cancer, James Kura deceased in March 1997, but the law practice was carried on by Messrs. Wilford and Pusateri and continued to establish itself within the ranks of Ohio’s prison inmate population. In September 2010, Sarah Schregardus, Esq. joined the firm, serving “of counsel” to Kura & Wilford, providing representation on a case-by-case basis. In April 2012, Dennis Pusateri closed his private law practice to accept a position within the Legal Division of the Office of the Ohio Public Defender, in the Appeals and Post-Conviction Section. In February 2013, the firm became Kura, Wilford & Schregardus Co., L.P.A.; Sarah Schregardus became a partner.  
     
  After 16 years of law practice, the firm is now solidly established within the legal community as the leading Ohio private law firm regarding post-conviction remedies, and enjoys a strong reputation within the Ohio inmate population for quality legal services—more than 250 clients have been released from Ohio prisons.  
     
 
 
     
* Post-conviction remedies include appeals, state post-conviction relief, federal court habeas corpus proceedings, probation and parole revocation proceedings, sexual predator adjudications, expungement proceedings, clemency applications, and administrative proceedings before the Ohio Parole Board.
